foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w

costs by the federal government. good old disaster relief, even if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going to rise. and what threat it's going to impose. what can you tell us about the conditions and how they are changing now? >> reporter: they have certainly deteriorat deteriorat deteriorated. we have a photo to show you. there's some water that's been reported gushing into the brooklyn battery tunnel. that's not a good sign of all this water pouring into lower manhattan. we have a picture of that to show you. obviously, it's a dangerous situation for emergency workers too. trying to assess the damage or what's going on exactly. and then back here at battery, we've also reached a new record. 11.87-foot record. the last time that happened was in 1821. let me show you back here. this is certainly not -- this water has been coming over here in battery park. these are waves that are just co
place. this is one of those times when government really matters. when we remember that elections are about picking a government. this is one of those times when leaders have to show that they are leaders. and they have to call on the best from all of us. one of those leaders who is right in the middle of this storm response and had a remarkable day at responding to this storm personally joins us next. >>> the president called me at 2:15 this afternoon. just the two of us on the phone. we had a good conversation. the the president wanted to know if we had everything we need ed to be able to respond to the storm from a federal perspective. i told him we did. he b wanted to check on the level of cooperation from fema, i said it was excellent because it is. he said if at any point over the next 48 hours i was not getting something from the federal government, i should call him directly at the white house and he was going to be there. and that i should just not worry about deal iing with anybody el. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very pro-active and i appreciate tha
for the movement in 2012. her prospects in or out of government are among conversations among conservative leaders. she's making sure she's well-positioned for the future if they lose. that was a week before election day in 2008. sarah palin's plans for saving her own skin once they lost the election were being leaked by her allies. and we know from people inside that campaign it caused enormous tension inside the mccain/palin camp. so imagine how this went over this week in the romney campaign. publically, the romney campaign is on their we're going to win tour. we're even going to win pennsylvania tour. that's what they are saying publically. that's their public message. meanwhile the associated press publishes a story that's eerily similar to the sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time it's paul ryan whose future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly assuming that they are about to lose and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be business i si as vice president. publically ryan and allies maintain that momentum i
would you assess the response and the coordination between the federal government, the state government, municipalities. how are we doing? >> i think we're doing very well. i mean, you heard the president, and i have to say that i think his response has been terrific, really. and it's been coordinated, unlike some of what happened in katrina. and you heard, you know, governor christie, who's a republican, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i did today, in fact, i was just on the phone before i came in here, was talk to fema about trying to get an office and a staff person in various parts of the district that i viewed today, and they're working on it. i also asked, with the money that comes to towns for recovery, like to rebuild their boardwalks or their municipal buildings if they've lost it or their streets, i think there's a 25% state and local match. so we've asked and i believe the governor asked today that that be waived. a lot of these towns a
